Ryan Pond's two-out, two-run double in the seventh leads Pack on to victory.
The win marks the first time in four years that State has won the first game of the Regionals, and puts them into a matchup with hot-hitting South Carolina tonight at 7:00.
The Gamecocks destroyed the Charlotte 49ers 15-8 in the first game of the Regionals. State will be sending their top ace--and freshly-minted Second-Team All America--Clayton Shunick to the hill to try to throw some water on the Gamecock bats.
Should be a great game tonight, and with tickets sold out well in advance, if you don't have one already you'll most likely be listening to it on the radio with folks like myself.
